Starting pay of a vet.

Species: Dog
Breed:
Age: Less than 3 mon
I'm a student hoping to study Vet Med but I might need to get student loan for the education fees. I wish to know what is the starting pay of a vet and the pay of a vet with lets say 3 years of experience so I could plan ahead to pay back the loan. Thanks alot!

Unfortunately, most vets do graduate with a large debt load and do take a good 20 years or so to pay it off!
